It is easy for businesses to reduce energy costs by installing high-efficiency lighting. Now with instant discounts, contractors and business customers may purchase eligible linear fluorescent and LED replacement lamps at a reduced cost without a rebate form at Connecticut distributors.

Whether you are looking to replace your interior or exterior commercial lighting, there is an energy-saving solution regardless of the application. And the instant discounts available at participating distributors help to offset the premium price of lighting, making energy-saving lighting fixtures and bulbs a cost-effective choice.

Finding the right energy-efficient lighting solution is easy. We work with ENERGY STAR® and the DesignLights Consortium® to promote the most energy-efficient lighting technologies available and make them affordable with instant discounts.

Use up to 75% Less Energy

ENERGY STAR certified commercial light fixtures use up to 75 percent less energy and last 10-50 times longer than incandescent lighting. Plus, qualified fixtures produce low heat, which reduces heating loads.

Make a smart energy choice and upgrade your lighting now.

Getting an Instant Discount is Easy

Review the list of eligible lighting products. Then visit to find a participating distributor near you.

When purchasing eligible replacement lamps from a participating distributor, they will request the business name, address and contact information for the business that the lamps will be installed. The incentives for eligible products will:

  • automatically be applied to your purchase; and,
  • your invoice should include a line item reflecting the Energize Connecticut discount received.

Express Service Lighting Rebates

Mail-in (express) rebates are available for Eversource and UI customers on eligible products not discounted at the retail point of purchase. Work with your lighting supplier to find eligible energy-efficient lighting fixtures and bulbs that work best for you.  Then submit your mail-in rebate application. Other terms and conditions may apply.

  • Customers are only eligible for rebates through one pathway with Energize Connecticut.
  • Lighting must be installed in the service territory of the participating utility.
  • When Express Service Lighting Rebates exceed $7,500, an authorized utility representative must inspect the project site before and after lighting is installed.
